#GoodRead | Why Nintendo Needs More Female Protagonists
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was met with a warm reception when it was announced at E3, but not every fan was happy with the choice of protagonist. For a while, rumours had been circulating that the next Legend of Zelda could have a female lead. Sadly, the mumblings weren’t true and producer Eiji Aonuma explained that giving Zelda the lead would have meant poor Link would be left at home, twiddling his thumbs.
Yep, even though the game is named after her, having Zelda in charge might mess up the “balance of the Triforce” (whatever that means), so she’s the one that has to stay at home.
